Issue with Melodic Dictation

Postby jbutler » Feb 08, 2019 8:51 am

In measure 5 I entered an incorrect rhythmic value. Instead of grading just that one rhythmic value incorrect EarMaster graded the the whole of measure 6 incorrect, however measure 6 was notated correctly. Can this issue be fixed?

Hi,

Measure 5 doesn't look correct. In which lesson was this happening?

Measure 5 is incorrect and that is not the issue. The issue is measure 6 which is correct however EarMaster marked it incorrect.
This was the Melodic Dictation exercise with a melody example I created. Can you access my course and see? In the cloud I have it labeled as Class "Module 5 - MUS 122" (file name: 122 Module 5.tut - Author: Justin Butler) lesson "1.8 Melodic Dictation". School account ID: ccc&ti

If you are using EarMaster Cloud, I would strongly advise that you use EarMaster 7. It contains hundreds of improvements and fixes over EarMaster 6, so the error you are experiencing in EarMaster 6 is most likely gone in the new version.

Upgrades are free for both students and teachers with EarMaster Cloud. You can simply download the free version of EarMaster on PC, Mac or iPad and type your EarMaster Cloud login by clicking o the Cloud-shaped icon in the top left of the home screen.

Here is the download page: https://www.earmaster.com/downloads/free-versions.html

I just tried the same lesson in version 7.1.27 and when I entered an incorrect rhythm in measure five the rhythm was counted as correct. The meter is 4/8 however there is an extra 8th note rhythm in measure five. I am trying to attach another screen shot to this reply but I am receiving an error message "HTTP error" when I add the .jpg as an attachment

I think the issue is that if the rhythmic note values are off, then the rest of the answer is displaced and EarMaster will count everything as wrong. The software looks at each note chronologically in a linear way.
